Modern family home with amazing view, 30 mins from airport

We built this house in 2013 and it served as our family home for 5 years before we returned to Canada. This year we spent Dec-Feb in it, and the rest of the time it's available for you!

It's a modern home built around the breeze and the gorgeous view. A large wrap-around balcony keeps the house cool and dry. Three large glass-and-aluminum garage doors open up the main living area to the outdoors. A full kitchen is equipped to make anything. We also have a Gaggia Classsic espresso maker and grinder, which means nothing if you're not into espresso, but if you are, it's like having your own coffee shop. :-)

The main floor has the open-concept kitchen/dining/living area, plus 2 bedrooms and a bathroom.

Upstairs is a family room, office, large balcony (my favourite place for coffee and wine), and the master bedroom with ensuite.

The bottom floor has a rental suite with long-term tenants who are delightful, quiet people.

I think you'll be pleased with the house for the price, but note that it is a functional family home and not a hotel or luxury suite.

The most important consideration before staying here is the location: it's not for everybody. It couldn't be farther from the touristy area of St. Lucia, which is centered in the north around Rodney Bay. It's in a fishing village, and all of the shops and food services are designed to cater to locals, not tourists.

You'll definitely need a rental car. Bus service and taxi service is poor — it's possible, but difficult, to get around. If you're skipping the rental car, you should be staying for several weeks and be prepared for lots of walking (on very hilly terrain).

However, if you want to experience authentic St. Lucia life, this may be the place for you. You'll be in a residential neighbourhood, and you'll hear people, chickens and dogs. You'll be warmly greeted by the friendly, relaxed locals. You'll get to buy fresh fish from fishermen. You'll explore Sabwisha, one of the last untouched beaches in St. Lucia, with fantastic snorkeling and spear fishing.

It's also within a 30-minute drive of several ultra-high-end resorts and some popular tourist spots:
- Sabwisha Beach (5 mins)
- Gros Piton hike (20 mins)
- Petit Piton hike (30 mins)
- Tet Paul hike (15 mins)
- Ladera resort (15 mins)
- Sugar Beach resort (30 mins)
- Mond Corbaril estate (15 mins)
- Ziplining (15 mins)
- Sulphur Springs (15 mins)
- Soufriere Town (20 mins)

Couple other things you should likely know:
- I think our place is best for couples or families that want to explore. I don't think this is a good place for a honeymoon or special anniversary.
- Very steep driveway with tight turn into parking. Go slow!
- No air conditioning. We built the house around the breeze, but on days without wind, especially August to November, it can be uncomfortable

One more thing: it's hard for us to keep up with the brutal Caribbean environment. Things that take 50 years to break down in Canada are gone in a year or two in St. Lucia — the result of sea blast, high humidity, insects, and moulds and funguses that attack everything. We do our best to keep it in good shape, but you'll be happier with your stay if you expect that some things will not be in perfect repair.

I think that's it! Email me if you have any other questions!
